STAMFORD, Connecticut — Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, the chair of the National Governors Association, is appearing in Stamford for the first of three regional summits across the country on education and workforce training.
Fallin is scheduled to meet today with Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who is the chair of the NGA's education and workforce committee. Other governors are expected to send representatives to the meeting, to be held at the Stamford Marriott Hotel.
A roundtable discussion is also planned to discuss what states are doing to better align education, workforce training and economic development to the needs of employers.
Malloy is expected to highlight investments made in education, pre-kindergarten through college, during his tenure as governor.
Fallin chose the issue of workforce training as her key initiative during her NGA chairmanship.
